County Clerk Questions

How should we handle similar brands?

If a party comes in to register a brand, which the clerk feels is too similar to a brand currently registered, the clerk has the right/authority to refuse to register that brand. It is the clerk’s duty to make sure duplicate brands are not registered in the same location on an animal.

How do I handle a dispute over the rightful owner of a brand?

The party who has registered or used the brand the longest has ownership of the brand.

How often should I send in the brand registrations?

You may submit brands daily or weekly, but no later than 30 days from the time registered.

  1. E-mail scanned forms to
